WhatsApp Group Faves Volume 1 – Beauty Products

Where do you go with a question or a query? You’re stuck between two products, or you have no idea where to begin in the first place…I personally dive straight into my WhatsApp group to find out what my nearest and dearest suggest. Between Ireland, Canada, Oz, Asia & the UK – there’s always someone online with an answer or a recommendation.

I thought that it could be cool to start a new series on the blog, where I share specific recommendations from my group of wonderful friends. When I suggested the idea in the WhatsApp group, and proposed “holy grail beauty products” as the first topic, the messages flooded in and the conversation was so insightful. THANK YOU SWEET ANGELS!!! 👼

I consider myself a rookie when it comes to beauty. In regards to who I follow and trust online for beauty recommendations, there are definitely pages and people who I turn to. But with that said, my first port of call is always my WhatsApp group. Below are my friends’ beauty essentials. Normal people who repurchase the same products over and over. I think that’s why I turn to them first when it comes to beauty. I know that they aren’t getting freebies or press drops, so I trust their opinions on the products that they spend their money on.
